The Compose Dream Games Marketplace
has recently begun to bring on more games. If you are a Canadian game designer we'd love to add you to our growing list of publishers. Right now we are focussed on Canadian designers, and Canadian retailers. We sell both direct to consumers, and to stores; both PDFs and Print+PDF.
Our current focus is Canadian games and stores, but we may expand to other games in the future.
There are a few principles we want to hold to:The best possible rate for Game Designers
Too many sellers of RPGs take far too high a cut. We take only 10% (after transaction fees). This means our designers get more funds to create more games. They get more of your support.

.Solid Partners with FLGS
Friendly local game stores are the cornerstone of the RPG hobby. Anyone picking up a print copy of one of our games, from one of our retailers, is entitled to a complimentary PDF. Customers should feel empowered to support their FLGS.
We are also planning on launching a "ship to store" option to let customers that want to order from us direct pick up their order at their FLGS. This gives the customer a break on shipping, immediate access to a PDF and the FLGS gets credit to get more of our games. This feature isn't active yet, but we should have it active in the next couple of months.

.A positive Network
We want to create a positive network between FLGS, game designers and gamers. This may include providing space for all of these people to talk, and facilitating "Designer Demo Days" at FLGS, and who knows what else.
It also means we'll do our best to reach out to everyone at conventions and other gatherings.So who is part of the CDG Marketplace?
